    Hey guys I am a member on lawnsite and decided I would make a thread over here. I picked up my plow from storage today to do some work on it. Here are pictures of my plow today plus a few from this past season. I will post pictures this upcoming season of my work here.

    The first 4 pictures are of my truck and the last one is of my old truck with a snowbear plow.

    Yeah its terrible! It is rubber because the guy who had it before me only used it to plow his omnistone driveway. It is coming off and a real blade is going on unless I get a second setup which is supposed to happen next week. But I can not complain because the entire setup was free (minus the mounts) when I bought the truck.

    For that plow did you have to buy extra adapters since its one of the newer super duties?

    Yeah I had to buy an ultramount setup for the truck and then the unimount conversion kit for the ultramount. Also I had the old wiring harness for the truck from the unimount and had to jerry rig it into my truck so I have a switch to turn on the lights and the turn signals don't work but luckily my turn signals are always above the plow. It pays off to have my dad who is a mechanic and can fix things/problem solve issues for me!

    I found a few pics from last year. Also I picked up my salter (free) this weekend. I plan on replacing the motor and auger and actually installing it hopefully this weekend. A few weeks ago I bought a new blade for the plow too and am hoping to install that next weekend

    I bought a new motor, auger, and spinner plate for the salter, and installed it, but I need to modify the spreader mount to fit on my tailgate. Also I am working on repainting the plow basically so it looks decent on the truck and doesnt rust too much more. Next year I am hoping to take it all apart and paint all of the black parts and have the blade all sandblasted down and painted professionally.

    10x better with a coat of paint, just wait till you put a new cutting edge on.

    I feel ya, I have so much maintenance to do on mowers and such but i cant find time to do any of it. Maybe over winter. Also I am hoping to fix my one walk behind and maybe sell it next year to buy another one, or a dump.

    A few more pics from prepping this past winter. Next weekend I should have the salter wired in and ready to go. All of the wires are run but I didnt have a mount for the controller so I didnt hook in the power or anything else yet. Also I am still using the truck for leaves for the next few weeks so its not dedicated to snow yet.
